Thought to be operational since before the 13th century; this is a fascinating location that preserves the history of Jakarta. Travel to the oldest China town area in Indonesia, Glodok, which was once located just outside the city walls before it was relocated. The area is characterized by winding lanes, slanting red tiled roofs, small dark shops and acts as a hub for the Chinese community. You will also get to visit the oldest Chinese temple in Jakarta, the Golden Wisdom Taoist temple called Jin De Yuan, which dates back to the 1650s.

curtinniemi | Dec 2019

I don't know if it was the content or the guide that was problematic. We were 2 people on a private tour and the guide didn't seem to want to be there. To be fair though, my colleague and I travel a lot and are not garden variety tourists. We
